The Political Science Programme of the D.D.Kosambi School of Social Sciences and Behavioural Studies, Goa University, remembered Jawaharlal Nehru on the occasion of his 134th birth anniversary today. Recalling Nehru’s contribution to the making of modern India, speakers acknowledged his contribution to making of institutions in higher education, science and technology that have made India a globally recognized player.
